Does anyone know a sports bar in Pensacola that would be the most likely to show the game today? Thanks

The author/philanthropist was exposed as a fraud few weeks ago on 60 Minutes. He lives in my town, so it's pretty much been a front page story here since the 60 Minutes piece aired.
I thought the book sucked and didn't finish it. My niece in New Orleans had to read it for school last year. Milli...

It was October 1997
When ESPN first came to town
The Gameday poem was born
And the #1 Gators went down
That was the beginning of the end for Gerry
Many wins have since gone by
We've seen the very best years of LSU Football
It's time for the Gameday poem to say goodby...

The two-headed quarterback was summoned
And with beautiful precision, delivered
On one sideline the grass eater grinned
On the other, the short guy shivered

And grab a little tissue paper, too
It's time for chicken...

How many National Titles
Can one repugnant fanbase claim?
Y’all just go ahead and call 25 or 30
The rest of us know you have no shame
Sooo…what’s with buying players in Alabama?
It must be in the genes
Auburn wants to cheat with the big guys
The whole state makes SMU lo...

The Conductor is a madman
You can’t get off the train
It moves with a speed and purpose
You simply can’t explain
He speaks a different language
The train keeps rolling on
The players seem to know it
But you wonder where you’ve gone
And then we’re at mid-season

I can give you 4 million reasons
Why it’s not enough that we’re winning
The Wall St Journal says we’re half psycho
That’s true, and it’s only the beginning
There’s no such thing as bad press?
Maybe if you’re Britney Spears
The talk is all about dumb and dumb...

The opening game, the national stage
The Fighting Tigers storm the dome
The crowd goes wild, the band strikes up
We make ourselves at home
And then it’s time for the other guys
Their fans are highly stressed
A bunch of squinting skinny white guys wander out

I'm sorry to start yet another thread about this, but I haven't lived in Baton Rouge for 5 years so I'm a little rusty on where to go.
I need a recommendation for someplace besides Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the game tonight. It has to be close to BR General.

As the year winds down in college football

Leach was fired and Urban retired
Rumor has it there's a "re-retiring" on the way
Your Tigers hired a new "Passing Game Coordinator"
